Barbara Kyagulanyi alias Barbie together with her husband, local musician, Bobi wine have driven charity in a whole new different direction as they try to reduce the number of girls dropping out of school due to menstruation management challenges and early marriages under the NGO, Caring Hearts Uganda.

Barbie under Caring Hearts Uganda waged a war against the act of girls being married off when they are still young and girls missing class for 4 to 5 days every month because they are having their menstruation periods.

“We will team up and refuse to be married off while we are still young, we refuse to be laughed at during our menstruation. We are at war with anything that wants to keep us out of school be it our maturation process. Through CARING HEARTS UGANDA we have launched our war,” Barbie said.

Barbie and her team, with the help of Bobi Wine visited Bukomero SS last Friday and gave out free reusable pads to each adolescent girl for better menstrual management. There were also free HIV testing and counseling opportunities.

“My sweet husband, the wind beneath my wings, my main cheer leader gave the students the wisest words of wisdom I’ve ever heard about life choices. We had free HIV testing and counseling. After all was said and done, students signed commitment cards promising not to engage in sexual activities until they complete school,” Barbie added.

Fans commended the Fire Base first family for their compassionate hearts and encouraged them to continue the good work as many village girls are still facing early marriages and menstrual management issues.

“Now that is what it means to live life with a purpose and lead by example. I will always salute the Kyagulanyi family, you are true role models,” a fan said.
